Airports in South Africa were operated and owned by the state until July 1993 when ‘ACSA’ (Airports Company South Africa) was firmly established. An Italian airports’ company ‘Aeroporti di Roma’ won the bid in 1998 becoming a tactical and resourceful partner, paying R819 million to gain a 20 per cent share in ACSA including amongst others, five major groups together owning 4.2 per cent.

Falling under the umbrella of ‘ACSA’ are nine airports, namely; OR Tambo International, Cape Town International, King Shaka International, Bram Fischer International, Port Elizabeth International, Upington International, East London, George and Kimberley Airports with many smaller privately owned airports scattered across South Africa.
